Hong Kong National Security Keeping Law “Non-Hong Kong Citizens Are Subject to Crackdown” August 2, 07:50
An American activist who was reportedly wanted by Hong Kong police on suspicion of violating Hong Kong National Security Keeping Law has revealed that he is an American citizen. The law also states that non-Hong Kong citizens are subject to a crackdown on actions carried out overseas, and it is expected that Washington will intensify its opposition.
Hong Kong media reported Friday that Hong Kong police wanted six Hong Kong activists living in the UK, the United States and other countries on suspicion of violating Hong Kong National Security And Maintenance Laws.
“The police in Hong Kong are targeting Americans who have lobbied their country’s governments,” said Zhu Med. who works in the United States, who made the comments on social media and revealed that he was an American citizen who had lived in the United States for 25 years. It may be the first time I’ve been targeted outside of the Chinese people. If I were to be a target, the people who speak out about Hong Kong could be targets, whether they were Americans or from any country.”
Mr. Zhu set up a civil society group in the United States last year and has been urging the U.S. government to impose sanctions on China.
Mr. Zhu said he had learned in the news that he had been wanted, and it was not clear what specific actions had been a problem.
The Hong Kong National Security Law also states that non-Hong Kong citizens are subject to a crackdown on actions carried out overseas, and it is expected that Washington will intensify its opposition in this case.
